Has 'The Handmaid's Tale' run its course?

"The Handmaid's Tale" is back on Hulu and if you are familiar with drama than you know it is less than warm and fuzzy. The series follows a woman who has her rights stripped and is forced to live in a fundamentalist dictatorship. Some say the events that lead up to the dystopian future of the series foreshadow where America is headed and refuse to watch the series. But others call the show brilliant and must-watch TV. Has "The Handmaid's Tale" run its course?

"The Handmaid's Tale" is hard to watch but fans can't get enough. The main character, June Osborne (Elisabeth Moss) is mesmerizing and viewers have become obsessed with the relentless main character who somehow always manages to avoid death and takes corporal punishment like a real OG.

But some fans are giving up on the series and say it's too dark, stressful and they are tired of waiting for it to lighten up. Critics argue the scenes are filled with gore for gore's sake and lack character development. The women in the series are constantly being tortured or killed and it seems as if viewers have nothing to look forward to. Even actress Amy Schumer has given up on the series. According to People:

“Oh ok so I can’t watch handmaids anymore. #filledwithregret,” joked Schumer in the caption, referring to season 3 of The Handmaid’s Tale, which just dropped three episodes on Hulu.

 At this point, some old fans say the show is a lost cause.
